CCMC 232 - Pool White Silver

This week's challenge at Create with Connie & Mary is a color challenge - and what refreshing colors they are:  Pool Party; Whisper White and Silver Glimmer.

I wanted to get as far away from Christmas cards as I could so decided to go for a clean and fresh gift card holder that would be suitable for a birthday or wedding.


I used an old gift card holder as my template, so I don't have a link for you, but there are plenty of them around in blogland if you are interested.

I stamped the vine stamp from Creative Elements onto the front using Pool Party ink.  A little heart punched out of silver glimmer paper finishes the base.  The belly band is also very simple - Whisper White with a layer of Pool Party DSP.  The greeting is from the Apothecary Accents framelits and I paper pierced an oval around the sentiment.  A couple of rhinestones finishes it off.

Thanks for looking.  Head on over to Create with Connie & Mary to see what the rest of the challenge team has come up with and give these colors a go.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Creative Elements; Made for You
Cardstock:  Pool Party; Whisper White; Silver Glimmer Paper; 2011-13 In Color DSP
Ink:  Pool Party
Accessories:  Word Window Punch; 1 1/4" circle punch; small heart punch; Basic Rhinestones

Cheers
Karren

Super cute gift card holder that could easily be turned into a card. My favorite part is the oval paper piercing! Happy New Year!

This is the perfect wrapping for a gift card. It would be fantastic done up in any color for any occasion. Cute!
